NI Programme for Government
The Programme for Government identifies the actions the Executive will take to deliver a vibrant economy which can transform our society while dealing with the deprivation and poverty which has affected some of our communities for generations.
The Innovation Strategy expands upon the Economic Strategy’s actions designed to increase employment and wealth by building a larger and more export-driven private sector and refines ways to stimulate innovation, R&D and creativity.
MATRIX recommended the creation of new business-led collaborations to assist high technology SMEs to exploit new business opportunities. MATRIX and DETI officials have worked closely with Invest NI to ensure that this approach has been fully integrated into the Invest NI Collaborative Networks Programme.
